Spitalfields' Fruit & Wool Exchange loses the battle
I am disgusted to report that the three-times overturned plans to develop this site have now been quashed, as the renovation of this historical site is imminent.
With all the empty office space in the vicinity, both in old dilapidated buildings in need of care and renovation, and in modern glass boxes, this is, to my mind, very hard to understand.
As per my comments in an earlier post, I really believe all this new-build is a way off off-setting funds and somehow avoiding tax etc. There can be no other sensible explanation.
See the wonderfully informative Spitalfields Life for a more in-depth report about this building and its future.
